I read a lot of productivity books. I don’t think it makes me more productive. Because really if I would just learn the lessons from one book, I shouldn’t need to keep reading them, right?
The latest few I have read, and some blog posts that have come up recently talk about rituals. This word must mean something different to them, then it does to me. As google defines a ritual as:
nouna religious or solemn ceremony consisting of a series of actions performed according to a prescribed order.
adjectiverelating to or done as a religious or solemn rite.
Well, I think me and google are on the same track. Ritual to me is something religious that is done repetitively, like regular worship of some kind.
These productivity posts and books seem to be using it as another work for routine. I guess ritual is a more hardcore form of a routine? I don’t know, it just seems like an odd use of the word ritual to me.
